Product InformationThe 'Fat Neck' from Cannonball is an underslung neck/crook designed for use on the Cannonball range of Alto Saxophones. It is silver plated in finish and the idea with the underslung minimalist mechanism is that you remove any weight and deadening from the top curve of the neck that is usually present with the key mechanism.The flow of air, or stream of air, follows that top curve when you blow and as such this removal of the key and weighty brass posts from the top of the neck allows it to play more freely with less obstruction or resistance.It might sound a tad fanciful but the underslung idea has been around for quite some time and so the science is nothing new. From a playing point of view we find the 'Fat Neck', compared to a standard Cannonball neck, is more immediate in terms of tone production and also a little more free blowing and brighter sounding.These crooks are designed solely for Cannonball Alto Saxes due to the bore shaping and size. It will not generally fit other brands.
